Ridgid Fuego 6-1/2” Framing Saw

ridgid_fuego.jpg
Ridgid has recently released the Fuego 6-1/2” Framing Saw, and if you’ve ever spend an agonizing day wielding a traditional framing saw, the size of this tool comes as a welcome relief. Weighing in at a mere 8 lbs, as opposed to the 13 lb DeWalt 7-1/4" Framing Saw, the Fuego is a lot lighter than the competition. We like that they didn’t just shave off 9 oz and call it lighter, they shaved off 5 entire pounds, which, in the tool world, is an astounding amount and can mean the difference between having a burning arm by 10am and working all day and actually getting something done.

In addition, the saw has a composite shoe, which, according to Ridgid, can withstand a 1 story drop. The Fuego has a bevel capacity of 50 degrees with a stop at 45 and comes equipped with a little blower to keep the cut line clear while cutting. On top of all this, the shoe has both front and rear kerf indicators for increased accuracy and the end of the cord is lit when plugged in to easily identify whether or not the Fuego is ’live.’

The package includes an 18 tooth carbide tipped blade, and a heavy duty bag for storage. The Fuego looks like a very impressive tool and has the potential of changing the way a lot of people work.
